Leicester game moved to Friday night + other fixtures rescheduled


Sky Sports and BT Sport have got their hands on the Premier League fixture list with six matches up to October being selected for television coverage. A further six have also been rescheduled.

For the first time ever, Arsenal’s first home game of the season will be played on a Friday night with the match against Leicester moved from the Saturday.
